Since moving into my new place, I have enjoyed creating my new “home”. The quickest way to personalize a room is through sofa pillows. Your living room is a place to entertain and have fun conversation pieces. Here is a step by step guide to personalizing pillows. I hope to start making and sharing DIY videos soon. Measure dimensions of your pillow. Add 1″ to the height and multiply the length by 2, then add 6″ i.e. (18″ x 18″ pillow requires 19″ x 42″ fabric). Place rectangle right-side down and press 1/2″. Fold over and press another 1/2″. Stitch 1/4″ from inner fold. Overlap right and left edges by 4″(right sides together). Measure the square to make sure it matches your pillow dimensions. Sew the top and bottom edges with 1/2″ seam allowance. Press. Turn your pillowcase right side out. Insert pillow. How did this work out for you? It took me a little over an hour to complete.

I am not the biggest fan of silk flowers or silk leaves. So I contacted a local florists and discovered Myrtle foliage. It will only stay alive for a few days. What are your thoughts?
